Brooklyn folk rock revivalists The Hollows are a freewheeling collective of multi-instrumentalists. Their rootsy sound is a melange of mandolins, banjos, guitars, accordions, horns, harmonicas, and just about anything else the guys can get their hands on. “Carried Away” is a sweeping, anthemic track off of their upcoming EP that shows The Hollows at their best.
The Hollows operate with an egalitarian ethos– there is no frontman amongst the group’s six members. Each of them rotate on instruments, lead vocals, songwriting and arranging duties, which gives their songs a feel that is eclectic but consistent. It’s clear that the members all have their own ideas, but also understand the group’s common goal.
